URGENT Action Update on Proposed Bills Threatening Exemptions, Forcing Vaccines and Tracking

March 11, 2015 Update

Dear NVIC Advo­ca­cy Team Mem­bers,

The war on fam­i­lies mak­ing selec­tive and informed vac­ci­na­tion deci­sions con­tin­ues to rage in state leg­is­la­tures across the coun­try. As of March 11, 2015, NVIC is track­ing 110 bills across 36 states!

[Scroll down to see a list of all the bills.] There is no coin­ci­dence regard­ing com­mon bill lan­guage remov­ing rights appear­ing in bills across the coun­try. This is an orches­trat­ed leg­isla­tive effort by those who want to force vac­ci­na­tion. Dead­lines to file bills are hap­pen­ing now and com­mit­tee hear­ings are start­ing to kick into full gear. Some bills are surg­ing for­ward and imme­di­ate action is need­ed while in oth­er states, active oppo­si­tion and edu­ca­tion has made a pro­found impact to slow­ing the bills down.

ELIMINATING AND RESTRICTING VACCINE EXEMPTIONS Hear­ings to remove philosophical/conscientious exemp­tions to vac­cine man­dates have already tak­en place in Wash­ing­ton and Ore­gon.  Cal­i­for­nia, Maine, Min­neso­ta, Penn­syl­va­nia, Texas, and Ver­mont all have bills already filed or press announce­ments of bills about to be filed to remove philosophical/conscientious exemp­tions.  Con­necti­cut, Maine, Min­neso­ta and Texas have bills to sub­stan­tial­ly restrict philosophical/conscientious exemp­tions. Reli­gious exemp­tions are also under attack. Mary­land, New Jer­sey, Rhode Island, Texas and Ver­mont have bills filed or announced to elim­i­nate reli­gious exemp­tions, and Illi­nois, New Mex­i­co and Texas have bills filed or announced to uncon­sti­tu­tion­al­ly restrict reli­gious exemp­tions.

EXPANDED VACCINE MANDATES Fif­teen states have bills filed to expand vac­cine man­dates. These include Con­necti­cut, Flori­da, Indi­ana, Maine, Mary­land, Mon­tana, Nebras­ka, Neva­da, New York, Ohio, Penn­syl­va­nia, Ten­nessee, Texas, Ver­mont, Vir­ginia, and West Vir­ginia. What is so dis­turb­ing about the Texas and Ver­mont bills are the vac­cine man­dates are for school employ­ees, and there are no philo­soph­i­cal or reli­gious exemp­tions allowed. These are the first states to go after teach­ers, school admin­is­tra­tors and school staff. Noth­ing like this has been passed before. It is very con­cern­ing that Hawaii, New York and Texas have bills filed to allow some minor chil­dren to con­sent to their own vac­cines behind their par­ents’ backs with­out their par­ents’ knowl­edge or con­sent. Cal­i­for­nia already has this lan­guage in statute. This is in vio­la­tion with fed­er­al law that requires par­ents to get Vac­cine Infor­ma­tion State­ments so they can make an informed deci­sion.

POLICE AND EMERGENCY POWERS Two states, Ari­zona and Texas, have bills that affect police and emer­gency pow­ers. The Texas bill gives the police the pow­er to forcibly detain peo­ple only sus­pect­ed of hav­ing been exposed to an infec­tious dis­ease and elim­i­nates the pro­tec­tive require­ment for a war­rant.

EXPAND AND FORCE INTRUSIVE VACCINE TRACKING AND VACCINE DATA SHARING 11 states, Ari­zona, Ida­ho, Mary­land, Mis­souri, Mon­tana, New Hamp­shire, New Mex­i­co, New York, South Dako­ta, Texas, and Ver­mont all have bills filed to require or expand vac­cine sta­tus track­ing in most cas­es with­out knowl­edge or con­sent to be used as manda­to­ry vac­cine enforce­ment sys­tems.

PUBLICALLY PUBLISH EXEMPTION AND VACCINATION RATES Five states, Ari­zona, Mary­land, Mis­souri, Ore­gon, South Dako­ta, and Texas have bills filed to pub­li­cal­ly release vac­ci­na­tion and exemp­tion rates by areas as small as indi­vid­ual schools and day care facil­i­ties to cre­ate an even more divi­sive, dis­crim­i­na­to­ry and prej­u­di­cial envi­ron­ment towards chil­dren with vac­cine exemp­tions. Iso­lat­ing and mar­gin­al­iz­ing healthy chil­dren whose par­ents don’t agree with all gov­ern­ment man­dat­ed vac­cines is un-Amer­i­can. These bills cre­ate an envi­ron­ment con­ducive to pit­ting par­ent against par­ent and child against child in an attempt to use com­mu­ni­ty peer pres­sure as a club to coerce par­ents to vac­ci­nate against their con­science and reli­gious beliefs. These bills have noth­ing to do with pub­lic health and pro­tect­ing immune com­pro­mised stu­dents when you con­sid­er the fol­low­ing facts: Some peo­ple are non-respon­ders to some vac­cines and vac­cine effec­tive­ness for some vac­cines, espe­cial­ly for per­tus­sis con­tain­ing vac­cines, wanes rapid­ly. Some stu­dents are pro­vi­sion­al­ly enrolled and not ful­ly vac­ci­nat­ed. Fed­er­al law, the McK­in­ney-Ven­to Act, requires that home­less stu­dents be allowed to attend school with­out proof of immu­niza­tions. There are no require­ments that teach­ers, staff, and admin­is­tra­tion be vac­ci­nat­ed with the same child­hood vac­cine sched­ule. These all are peo­ple who are no dif­fer­ent immuno­log­i­cal­ly than a healthy stu­dent with a vac­cine exemp­tion and yet they rep­re­sent a much larg­er per­cent­age of the school pop­u­la­tion than the stu­dents with a vac­cine exemp­tion tar­get­ed by these bills. On the oth­er hand, stu­dents with active HIV infec­tions are not only allowed to attend school, their con­fi­den­tial­i­ty of their infec­tion sta­tus is pro­tect­ed in state and fed­er­al law. Stu­dents who are vac­ci­nat­ed with live viral vac­cines expe­ri­ence viral shed­ding and can infect sus­cep­ti­ble indi­vid­u­als for a peri­od of sev­er­al weeks post vac­ci­na­tion. Some peo­ple who are vac­ci­nat­ed still get the ill­ness while some have sub­clin­i­cal infec­tions and can still trans­mit vac­cine pre­ventable dis­eases and not show symp­toms because the vac­cine sup­press­es them. If this is all about pro­tect­ing health, where are all the bills requir­ing dis­clo­sures about all of the above to par­ents?

WHAT CAN YOU DO? Assess what you are up against in your state. Log into the NVIC Advo­ca­cy Por­tal at http://NVICAdvocacy.org and look below to see a snap­shot of what bills are cur­rent­ly filed in your state. First, con­tact your own leg­is­la­tors and their staff, and then ask your friends and fam­i­ly to do the same. Imme­di­ate­ly con­tact your state leg­is­la­tors and con­nect to them from your heart about why these bills can hurt your fam­i­ly. Do not wimp out and just send an email if there is any way pos­si­ble you can meet with them in per­son or talk on the phone to them. Make them look into your eyes or hear your voice when you sin­cere­ly tell them about vac­cine reac­tions and health con­cerns for your fam­i­ly, how you and your chil­dren have been treat­ed by doc­tors and your school over this issue, why you delay or decline vac­cines, and why they may want to pre­serve this right for them­selves and their own fam­i­ly in the future. If you fol­low a non-phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal­ly based mod­el of health care, tell them why. Edu­cate them. You have to con­nect to them on a per­son­al lev­el so they can get this.  Find out what oth­er bills they have spon­sored so you can find com­mon ground about things you both care and agree about to break the ice. We are fight­ing a very pow­er­ful pharma/medical forced vac­ci­na­tion lob­by, but they don’t have these per­son­al con­nec­tions that con­stituents have.

Please reg­is­ter for the NVIC Advo­ca­cy Por­tal if you haven’t already and make it a habit to log in fre­quent­ly to stay updat­ed and learn what you can do to help with each bill in your state.  Reg­is­tra­tion is required so we can help con­nect you with your leg­is­la­tors. Check the bill sta­tus on the NVIC Advo­ca­cy Por­tal to see if you have any upcom­ing hear­ings on the bills and make every effort to attend the hear­ing and reg­is­ter your posi­tion on the bill and offer writ­ten and/or oral tes­ti­mo­ny. Addi­tion­al­ly, one of the most help­ful addi­tion­al things you can do is to take proac­tive steps to reach out into your com­mu­ni­ty to your local sup­port­ive health care prac­ti­tion­ers, par­ent­ing groups, polit­i­cal groups, nat­ur­al health web­sites and blogs, and friends and fam­i­ly ask­ing them to share this infor­ma­tion with their con­tacts so they can com­mu­ni­cate with their leg­is­la­tors too. Keep the media hon­est! If you see an arti­cle or news show some­where with mis­in­for­ma­tion, take the time to com­ment, sub­mit a let­ter, and reach out to news edi­tors to cor­rect the mis­in­for­ma­tion. Do not let these deci­sions be made for you by those whose pow­er, posi­tions or prof­it are depen­dent on forced vac­ci­na­tion.

  • Choose how you would like to deliv­er your mes­sage. The sug­gest­ed modes of com­mu­ni­ca­tion below are list­ed in the order of being more like­ly to be more impact­ful on edu­cat­ing your leg­is­la­tor. Make the per­son­al appoint­ments. Please don’t think sign­ing a peti­tion is going to change any­thing.
  • a) Make an appoint­ment for a direct per­son­al vis­it;
  • b) Make an appoint­ment to talk direct­ly in a per­son­al phone call;
  • c) Make an appoint­ment to talk in per­son to a leg­isla­tive aide;
  • d) Call and talk to a leg­isla­tive aide to relay a mes­sage; or e) Send an email through web con­tact forms or leg­isla­tive email address.
  • Sug­gest­ed talk­ing points for state leg­is­la­tors: Intro­duce your­self and iden­ti­fy your­self as a con­stituent.  (If this is a meet­ing or a phone call, ask them if they agree with the state­ment that nobody should be forced to sub­mit to any med­ical pro­ce­dure, includ­ing vac­ci­na­tion, which car­ries the risk of injury or death.) Share that you are very con­cerned about some of the divi­sive one-sided con­ver­sa­tions and bills being filed right now regard­ing vac­ci­na­tion exemp­tion rights (or bills filed in your state). Explain why it is impor­tant to your fam­i­ly to be able to delay or decline vac­ci­na­tion.  This is where you could share your vac­cine reac­tion, harass­ment, or vac­cine fail­ure sto­ry to per­son­al­ize your com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Explain that there are some very impor­tant rea­sons why legal­ly pro­tect­ing the right to informed con­sent to vac­ci­na­tion with­out penal­ty by the state should be a pri­or­i­ty and these cru­cial points have been left out of the con­ver­sa­tion by forced vac­ci­na­tion pro­po­nents.
  • Vac­cines are phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts that cause injury and death for some.  The Unit­ed States Gov­ern­ment has paid out more than $3 bil­lion dol­lars to vac­cine vic­tims. Many more peo­ple have adverse reac­tions. Nobody can pre­dict who will be harmed from vac­cines.
  • Vac­cines man­u­fac­tur­ers and the doc­tors who admin­is­ter vac­cines are com­plete­ly shield­ed from lia­bil­i­ty for vac­cine injuries and deaths.
  • Vac­cines fail some­times where even ful­ly vac­ci­nat­ed peo­ple become infect­ed.  Nobody can pre­dict who will or will not respond to vac­cines.
  • Chil­dren today receive 69 dos­es of vac­cines for 16 dif­fer­ent viral and bac­te­r­i­al ill­ness­es which more than dou­bles the gov­ern­ment child­hood sched­ule of 34 dos­es of 11 dif­fer­ent vac­cines in the year 2000.  A vac­cine exemp­tion is filed regard­less of whether the exemp­tion is filed for one dose or all dos­es. 35 dos­es and 5 more unique vac­cines have been added to the sched­ule in the last 15 years. Those sup­port­ing forced vac­ci­na­tion are being dis­hon­est by not acknowl­edg­ing the explod­ing vac­cine sched­ule while sound­ing alarms over small increas­es in over­all non-med­ical exemp­tions.
  • There are hun­dreds of new vac­cines in devel­op­ment includ­ing some of the fol­low­ing in clin­i­cal tri­als: HIV, her­pes, E. coli, dengue fever, avian influen­za, small­pox, tuber­cu­lo­sis, typhoid, norovirus, cholera, smok­ing ces­sa­tion, syphilis, and gon­or­rhea. If vac­cine man­u­fac­tures and oth­ers who prof­it from forced vac­ci­na­tion con­vince leg­is­la­tors take away our right to delay or decline a vac­cine now, what will our future look like?
  • In the past 5 years, drug mak­ers have paid the U.S. Gov­ern­ment $19.2 bil­lion in crim­i­nal and civ­il FRAUD penal­ties. Skep­ti­cism of the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try is well deserved, and it doesn’t imply a skep­ti­cism of sci­ence.
  • Physi­cians, in the Amer­i­can Med­ical Asso­ci­a­tion Code of Ethics, affirm philo­soph­i­cal and reli­gious exemp­tions for them­selves. See Opin­ion 9.133 Rou­tine Uni­ver­sal Immu­niza­tion of Physi­cians.  Par­ents should have that same right.
